Angel, Anne, Dimples team up to boost mass testing in the country

Real-life Darna is back to fight COVID-19—and this time, she is joined by the ultimate Dyosa and the fiery Daniela!

Real-life Darna Angel Locsin is back and this time, she is joined by the Ultimate Dyosa, Anne Curtis, to help conduct coronavirus mass testing in the country.

Angel announced on her Instagram that the two are relaunching  “Shop and Share,” a fundraiser she and Anne Curtis had in 2009 to help those affected by Typhoon Ondoy. But this time, the proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to buy coronavirus test kits.

“It’s been a while since we’ve done this — way back in 2009 in fact when we first put up Shop and Share to help those who were affected by Typhoon Ondoy,” Angel writes in her Instagram post.

“We had actors, singers, and even basketball players donate personal items from designer bags, clothes, jerseys, jewelry, etc., and we auctioned them off on eBay, with all the proceeds going to the Philippine Red Cross.”

To our friends and fellow artists, Hi. It’s been a while since we’ve done this — way back in 2009 in fact when we first put up Shop and Share to help those who were affected by Typhoon Ondoy. We had actors, singers and even basketball players donate personal items from designer bags, clothes, jerseys, jewelry, etc., and we auctioned them off on ebay, with all the proceeds going to the Philippine Red Cross. And, now, we humbly reach out again. These are hard times, truly frightening times for the Filipino people, especially with corona virus cases still on the rise. Many have been doing their part in trying to give hope or just to make each day easier for those who are in need. And the hard truth is they will remain in need as Covid-19 remains the invisible enemy amongst us changing our lives and sadly disrupting livelihoods. We would like to revisit the idea of artists coming together and helping those who need it the most. This time, with the funds we raise, we would like to purchase test kits and allow testing opportunities for the poorer sectors in the hopes of helping out in the efforts to provide mass testing in the country. Yes, in support of mass testing. Because in this way we can make a higher impact, by pushing the TEST-TRACE-ISOLATE/TREAT formula that is the only proven way to defeat the virus. If you are keen please do let us know. We do hope you can join us as we all work together to help flatten the curve in the Philippines in our little way. God Bless You, Team Shop & Share.

A Helping Hand

In light of this, Angel explained that they decided to “humbly reach out again”  because these hard times are truly frightening for the Filipino people, especially with COVID-19 cases still on the rise in the country. 

“Many have been doing their part in trying to give hope or just to make each day easier for those who are in need. And the hard truth is they will remain in need as COVID-19 remains the invisible enemy amongst us changing our lives and sadly disrupting livelihoods,” the actress said.

Anne Curtis also announced the launch of their COVID-19 project on her Instagram page.

“To our fellow artists and colleagues, if you would like to be part of this, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us,” Anne wrote. “We do hope you can join us as we all work together to help flatten the curve in the Philippines in our own little way.”

Actress Dimples Romana also shared the announcement on her social media accounts.

“We pray we can encourage you once again to help out so we can all come together and help flatten the curve in our country! For all our artist friends, we would love and appreciate your support. Kindly get in touch with any of us,” Dimples said.

The Forbes Hero of Philanthropy, Angel Locsin, together with Dimples Romana recently wrapped the #UniTENTWeStandPH campaign which raised  P11 million to provide tents to different hospitals in the country. On the other hand, UNICEF Ambassador of Goodwill Anne Curtis’ blk cosmetics donated pampering face masks for frontliners.
